Cora was a 1944 graduate of Rupert High School and a faithful member of the Rupert Church of God for many years. Later in life, she attended the Caldwell Pentecostal Holiness Church and the Emmanuel Open Bible Church on Vago Road.
Cora enjoyed spending time with her family, making her famous macaroni and cheese for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, attending church, and listening to Christian television.
